Storm posts record win

UNBEATEN Melbourne celebrated a club-record ninth straight win as Penrith endured a 44-10 hammering as well as injuries to New South Wales Origin hopefuls Michael Jennings and Luke Lewis on Saturday night.

Star centre Jennings suffered a shoulder injury, while back-rower Lewis hobbled from the field at full-time.

Adding to the Blues' growing injury list, Jennings was assisted from the ground minutes after Storm winger Justin O'Neill ghosted past him to run 90 metres early in the second half of the eight-tries-to-two rout at Penrith Stadium.

The Panthers star originally suffered the injury to his right shoulder in last week's loss to Newcastle and looked a passenger until he was forced off in the 52nd minute.

But Penrith coach Ivan Cleary claimed it was his decision to take Jennings off and not a medical one.
